because, you know, if i was thinking about the speech that president obama gave, while it was very powerful and hopeful, there was one more piece that i think needed to be add fd you're thinking analytically, and that is even if that engagement fails, at least we know we tried and at least we know and the world knows where the responsibility lies. i think president obama's been good at helping orchestrate sanctions against iran because everyone recognized it was iran that stole an election from its own people. it was iran that continued to violate u.n. prohibitions against its nuclear enrichment activities, and obama managed to use his willingness to engage with iran when his hand was reached out and it was slapped back by ahmadinejad. he was then in a position to get tough with iran. so we're in this dilemma. i'm afraid engagement cannot guarantee a happy outcome but i agree with you, obama was signaling that he's willing to go the extra mile on the diplomatic front before he has to face that stark choice about how you prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon if iran keeps up th

and mrs. obama and their wonderful girls our best wishes and prayers on this historic day. may almighty god bless them and our wonderful country over the next four years. >> the parallel that i would draw with president obama's fans, followers would be that of ronald reagan. reagan made the country feel good about itself, and i think that is an element that president obama has. the people that believe in his agenda, believe in him, believe in what he's been able to accomplish. there's a parallel of how they connect to that president, and i think that that is the parallel between reagan and president obama. these folks right here, these wage earners, these middle class answerers, they know that guy in that limousine is their guy. they know that he cares about them, and there is an emotional connection. >> the presidential reviewing stand there out in front of the white house. i am rachel maddow here from our location at the newseum. chris matthews is taking over our coverage now of the inaugural parade along with martin bashir. he will see you again at 9:00 eastern. all our prime time sh

the way he looked? they didn't believe his marathon lies. >> they didn't like the obama phone they were given and the gifts they got from the president. >> what is this man talking about? >> paul ryan did say things like urban voters. he has that same view that mitt romney does about the 47% being takers and getting gifts from the government. that is his view, and so as long as you have that core understanding among paul ryan, who is supposed to be a leader of the republican party, they are not going to be able to evolve. they might be able to put on a happy smiley face according to newt gingrich, but they're not going to be able to evolve and come to grips with the reality of the fact that their ideology was and is still being rejected by the american electorate. >> ari melber, krystal ball, thanks. >>> the vice president outlines a gun safety plan that makes sense and remember you can always follow us at any time on facebook. >> i don't like this word empower. i think that's one of these like dopey words that people throw around. but, again, i don't go on facebook. i don't know what y

? otherwise this isn't going to mean anything. >> absolutely. victoria, president obama will outline his approach as we said tomorrow. he's going to las vegas. but senator marco rubio writes in an op-ed today, i'm quoting him, my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster, and unfair to those waiting to come legally, it won't bode well for reform. that suggests there's a fight brewing already, doesn't it? >> it does, but i think it's more smoke than fire. the biggest difference that we were expecting to see between the senate proposal and the presidential proposal was a pathway to citizenship, and i was pleasantly surprised this morning when i saw that the senate proposal said that citizenship was an option. i don't think there's going to be a lot of fight in terms of the details. both republicans and democrats have come to the realization that we do have to be fair to those immigrants who have been here waiting in line. they may quibble about the details of t

in texas, this is how we really wanted to start our show. ♪ >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. ♪ >> i recognize that democracy is not always easy, and i recognize there are profound differences in this room. >> he's very successful at dividing people. >> he doesn't just want to paint his points as wrong but as morally wrong. >> we cannot mistake absolutism for principles, substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. >> it was the most port san and divisive inaugural address in living memory. >> think about the jouge outrageous language. >> the commitments we make to each other, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. >> can we do that? can we protect everybody? >> they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> i don't even get invited to the white house media christmas party. >> i want to bring in our panel now. here no new york is joy reid, and in washington msnbc political analyst the great david corn of "mother jones." republicans have been busy crafting their crit

.s. and israeli flags again at the embassy. in kuwait chanting obama we are all osama. the flag again. and in libya, the flag was carried through the streets there as well. my question, madam secretary, is were you aware of this d.o.d. report prior to the terrorist attack in benghazi? >> well, i was certainly aware of a number of reports from throughout our government. i don't know of the specific one you're referring to. there were d.o.d. reports, community reports, state department reports talking about the decreasing -- or the increasing threat environment in eastern libya. that is what we were trying to establish with the libyans. the election in july brought to victory what we would consider moderates. people who had a very different view of the kind of future than certainly al qaeda or these militants have. but there's going to be a struggle in this region and the united states has to be as effective in partnering with the non-jihadists whether they fly a black flag or any other flag. >> i clearly understand that, however, this flag was pointed out to be affiliated with al qaeda
